Failed install of v26 4024 (Apple Silicon) on Ventura Mac Studio

Robert Nichols

I'm working on initial setup of new Mac Studio M1 Max. It shipped with Ventura, so working with that. 


I've downloaded Archicad v26 (4024) and installed. I *think* install of Archicad went ok, as it can run in demo mode. But something is screwed up because I get hard crash immediately upon starting Archicad with license key identified. The key is successfully downloaded from the key server. I suspect CodeMeter driver that I have installed is NOT Ventura compatible, or something like that.


CodeMeter app reports its running version 7.00.3918.500. I don't really know my way around CM components.


Archicad help literature related to Ventura says to make sure correct CodeMeter drivers are installed, but then the linked pages (CodeMeter and WibuKey Driver Downloads) doesn't seem to address Ventura (OS X 13.0) compatibility. 


The macOS Crash Report indicates last successful call/event (don't really know what I'm talking about here) was to process LicenseManagerBase. Then a hard crash.


Anyone seen this before and learned how to fix?

Try downloading and reinstalling the codemeter driver from here.
